Taking a break from blogging about politics is more or less a matter of maintaining solid mental health. Now seems as good a time as any. On account of this, I would like to offer a few pictures of my beloved cat Doof. She is a Maine Coon, approximately three years of age, terribly angry 95% of the time (though we haven't yet figured out what about), and has a coat of hair the size of Texas. Since she is mostly an outdoor cat, keeping up with grooming can be difficult. As such, her hair has a tendency to mat. This, as you might imagine, has the effect of making any already disgruntled cat even angrier. The solution? Give her a lion cut:
In all honestly, I think this is hilarious to such an extent it might be done every summer henceforth. But, on a more serious note, her disposition has improved greatly. I think it has mostly to do with the fact that she can better stand the long hot summers we experience in Kansas, and avoid the discomfort caused by matted hair.
If you have a Maine Coon or other long-haired feline, I seriously recommend giving it the lion cut during summer months.
